A Spring Montage, Seitan Gyros, and Something Sweet…

Happy Spring! The weather here in Portland today was lovely and sunny, so I went on a walk and took some photographs. The flowers are blooming everywhere and the bees are pollinating, and with that said…

I made Seitan Gyros (from Vegan Express) for dinner with Rosemary Roasted Potatoes (also from Vegan Express, but without the olives). The pitas and the seitan (recipe for the seitan from Vegan with a Vengeance) were both homemade.

And finally…dessert! The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is a favorite among many, including myself. And since tomorrow is Easter, I wanted to make some peanut butter eggs. Instead of an egg shape I decided on an orb shape. So really, these are peanut butter orbs. Simply peanut butter mixed with some powdered sugar and a little Earth Balance, dipped in melted chocolate. These are difficult to stop eating. I always freeze them hoping that the wait to thaw them will deter me (and my boyfriend, who sneaks these from freezer to mouth without the thawing) from snarfing them all up in minutes. Sometimes that method works, and most of the time it doesn’t.

That’s it. Hopefully I will have some time tomorrow to post whatever ends up on the Easter menu!
